As part of the History course and in connection with Moral and Civic Education, the 8th graders of the LFIB took part in a democratic role play. Transposed to the context of the Third Republic, the aim of the students who became ministers or deputies was to propose legislation with the aim of granting new rights, strengthening freedoms or improving the living conditions of workers. The students worked hard to write proposals in the areas of health, justice, education and labour. After the explanatory statement and the reading of the articles of the bill, a debate phase was opened so that “budding MPs” could discuss and amend the proposed text. This democratic exercise required many skills, both written and oral.
